Early Access Program for TeamCity 1.2 and Agra (1.5) Is Open

We are glad to launch the long-awaited early access program for the next versions of TeamCity, namely 1.2 and Agra (a codename of 1.5 version).

The nearest minor release (1.2) is mostly aimed at supporting the continuous integration process of .NET platform developers. It already provides:

  • integration with Visual Studio and possibility to open the stacktraces of failed tests when you click the link of failed test on the web.
  • support of Visual SourceSafe 2005 and 6.0 to manage your source files revisions.


Please note: in this EAP you will need to have VSIP (Visual Studio Industry Partner) SDK to use Visual Studio add-in for TeamCity (available at Microsoft web-site for free). Please visit http://affiliate.vsipmembers.com/ for details. This will certainly be fixed in the next EAP and release versions.

Agra improves nearly every aspect of TeamCity:

  • Web Administration:
    • enhancements of agent properties management
    • dependent builds triggering
    • project cloning
    • checkout on build agent
  • Version Control Systems:
    • ClearCase support
  • Build runners:
    • a Build Runner for searching code duplicates
    • Improved Maven 2 support
    • Ant 1.7 support
  • Usability enhancements:
    • viewing file changes (diff) on the web (already implemented)
    • enhanced, more flexible notification rules
    • customizable build log filtering
  • Integration with IDEs:
    • Eclipse integration
    • Microsoft Visual Studio integration enhancements


In the Agra version we also plan to support Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Team System – one more good news for .NET platform developers.
